Leo the Lion’s Not-So-Greek Greek Stuffing

Leo the Lion’s Greek Stuffing

Okay–I know…  It’s not Greek.  I can’t believe he didn’t correct our  perception that it was all those years.  But my father-in-law was from the old country and spoke just enough English to get by.  I miss those holidays when so much family attended we ate in shifts around 2 dinner tables.


This recipe was created by my father-in-law.  It is as rich and colorful as he was.  He is much missed, but his cooking still flavors our lives.

Two and a half pounds hamburger

½ stick butter

salt and pepper to taste
